, the disintegration of yugoslavia, america's role there, and now you have come out with this book, "a country of vast designs: james k. polk, the mexican war, and the conquest of the amecan continent." and here we are, that book that i fail to remember the name of was a "sands of empire." i learned more than i had known before on the balkans. >> two chapters on the balkans. >> and very complete. tell me, why should i be interested in james k. polk? >> by calculation was that james capel collides in the black hole of america's consciousness. that james k. polk collide -- resides in the black hole of america's consciousness. my aim was to tell the story in as compelling away as possible. >> tell us, his presidency was just before the civil war? >> yes, he was elected in 1844, served from 1845 to 1849. he was one of the youngest people elected president. he was 49, one of five presidents elected in their 40's. he gave up the presidency at age 53, from three died shortly thereafter. he literally worked himself to death. not the majority of our presidents have been more pridents. he was one. many believe
occupation of cuba territory. most of latin america history have some knowledge of castro's hostility towards the base. but what is generally not known is that from the early 1900s to the present, guantanamo has also been a sight for diplomatic accommodation, compromise, and cooperation. the terms dictated by the platt amendment only stated that the united states would buy or lease naval or station, buy or lease them. in cuba. it did not specify a number of such stations, nor their locations. that was a matter of negotiated compromise between the cuban president and theodore rooseve roosevelt, that the united states would obtain really only one major naval station and that would be guantanamo, not havana. now, obviously, the united states has always had the upper hand in these negotiations. when i say diplomatic compromise, i'm not suggesting that the two parties started on a level playing field. that certainly would not be the case. the second major compromise occurred in 1934 when the united states abrogated the platt amendment, which had become an increasingly unpopular with the various se

for $10 million ahead of what it called america's birth certificate. the math that gave america its name. that $10 million was the most the library had ever spent on anything. it was also almost $2 million more than had recently been paid for an original copy of the declaration of independence, and that kind of caught my attention. i never heard of the map or had seen the map but the library seemed to think it was the most valuable piece and the market even seemed to think it was more than an original copy of the declaration of independence. so, i wanted to find out more and at this point i was thinking maybe i would do an article, short piece for the alana tech. so i did some research and got the basics of the story pretty quickly. early in the 1500's in the eastern part of france in the mountains there was a small group of scholars among them the mapmaker martin and he had come across letters and at least one early sailors chart showing the coastlines of the new world and they decided that what they were reading about and see on the charts was not a part of asia as most people had assu

bernanke and the chairman of the federal reserve, i think we'd be looking at a very different america today. now he was not my choice to become the chairman of the federal reserve. the previous administration nominated ben bernanke. i voted for him. and then when i became chairman of the banking committee in january of 2007, for the first time, i went through a very frustrating year on that committee. on february 7 of 2007, i had my first hearings on the issue of the mortgage crisis in the country. and we had 12 such hearings on that committee over the remaining months. almost one every month on this issue. yet, i could not get the chairman of the federal reserve to pay as much attention as i thought he should have. beginning in the latter part of 2007, and going forward, his leadership in my view was absolutely critical to avoiding the kind of problems this country faced. so, mr. president, i'll speak for a few more minutes later in this tee baivment but i think we would make a great error, indeed, if we were to reject this nomination. we'd not terminate this filibuster, vote up and down o

on that? >> i think, you know, he was very much in tune with, i think, america, americana, what was going on. he certainly knew who elvis presley was. i don't know whether he followed the career completely, but he understood his place in american culture. his importance. i think halederman understood that. obviously dwight chaffin who continued this whole thing, this would not have happened without dwight's foresight and vision. i think the president was aware of it. he didn't play the tunes at night. >> a question for jerry, i wanted to know if you had insight or details of the logistics of elvis leaving memphis, his first trip to washington, as far as, you know, it's mind-boggling to think that elvis gets on a plane in in memphis, comes to washington, if i was walking through the airport, i'd probably be standing there, staring, waiting for elvis to do or say smog, as far as him arriving in washington and checking into the hotel, did he tell you anything, anything happening, taxi ride, do you have any details? >> there was a couple of details. one was, you know, what ementioned earlier
believe that barack obama was born in america? do you believe that the constitution can allow states to separate out from individual deals on the health care plan? they're all sort of hot-button issues designed to find tape that will allow democrats to identify and marginalize republicans as being part of some sort of fringe. >> yeah. i was just going to say, if that's their plan, i would hope the republicans would take that. those are easy questions to answer, i would think, unless you are an extremist. hey, let's go to another issue right now that has to help democrats out with independent voters, mike. i'm sure it is causing a firestorm on the left. there are a lot of conservatives that say it's not really that big of a deal. but it is with independents. barack obama's expected to propose a major spending freeze to rein in the deficit, freezing 19% of the budget to so-called -- ska with me here -- the domestic discretionary spending. talk about that plan and whether he's going to face a revolt from the left. >> well, he can hope so because you're right, the more flak he gets from
violence and today a shootout during a bank robbery. i had to ask secretary clinton will america's and the world's generosity be well spent? >> geraldo: are sufficient safe sals guards in place to make sure the money is spent wisely? >> yes, we have a very clear set of ground rules that will be followed. as you may know, we are working closely with the government of haiti before this tragedy and had worked out many of the issues that needed to o be addressed in order to deliver assistance and we will build on that. >> geraldo: tonight, the moment of crisis. can haiti be saved? tens of thousands of haitians, their bodies have been recovered. tens of thousands of bodies have been recovered. hundreds of thousands of haitians are homeless this night. aid is only now beginning to trickle out to the people. one of the most important issues here is security. let me start the program by introducing you to the people who brought me the fine troopers of the 82nd airborne, this is the second brigade combat team, major larry jordan. your guys are war fighters, they are seeing all this misery
to add mitt that. well that's not what a lot of folks in america say. i think the last rasmussen poll had in popularity, we were 22%. tea parties 35 and democrats 32. so we clearly have a gap between the american people and party. and i think it's the responsibility of the national chair and chairs around the country to fix that. and the way you begin to do it is to acknowledge this is where we've made mistakes when you grow government and spend money and go against the principals so important to defining the party for generations you walk away and create problems and we sought results in 2006 and 2002348 losses at the pole and loss of confidence and faith in the party and so i think now we have an opportunity once we acknowledge where we've gone wrong and stand firmly on principals and lead into the future with positive ideas and a new direction. the american people will come to us and i think we've seen that in new jersey and virginia with their elections. host: you talk about the tea party groups in your book right now. are they the future of the republican party? guest: they are to
important initiative that gets people working immediately. jobs here in america. we think that's very important. it also tries to help states so they're not laying off teachers and policemen and firemen. we think that's very important as well. but let me say something. i did a little -- i get a little confused and perhaps these facts are not well known to you, but i thought i would remind you of these facts. we pursued an economic program that your party put forward from 2001, 2003 on for eight years. now while the people gave us the majority in the house and senate in 2006, obviously president bush threatened to or did, in fact, veto any changes that we made in economic policy. that economic policy which you were a very strong supporter of and your party was a very strong supporter of, you continue to mention jobs. so i want to make sure you know these statistics. in the last three months of the bush administration under the economic policies that not only did you pursue then but you still want to pursue, because, in fact, the proposals that you had made essentially mirror the propos
